Photos for the WPS in the bag challenge this year. I'm liking the set-up shot more than the final one, to be quite honest. I wish the instruction sheet (folded into a crane) had been bigger, and the clothes peg had been smaller, but sometimes you have to work with what you're given...

I love the concept and execution of the setup.

I think what helps the second shot (and not the first) is the background -- shot against non-dominating, but textured material (fabric plus light/shadows), the foreground objects are more obviously the focus, and the white balloon doesn't dominate the colour spectrum so much. In the first shot the carpet texture (which I like) disappears into black at the left and white at the right towards the top, both of which are pretty attention grabbing. If only you had an infinite sized room with an infinite sized carpet...

Perhaps if you were to crop in from the top right to eliminate the black/white stealing the shot, it'd be more obviously focused on the paper crane and it's "tail"? (Not sure if that counts as cheating -- eg, if you had to include all items in the final shot.)
